How to write a solution using LATEX........or in the way Calvin writes?

[Examples from Peter]

\(\frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{2}=1\)

\(a^2+b^2=c^2\)

Hello alpha,

See the formatting guide beneath each discussion and comment posting box for some pointers on how to write LaTex. The full formatting guide is here and has directions on how to code LaTex. The basic gist of it though is that any writing that you want to appear looking like pretty math, you bracket with backslashes and parentheses. \( \). I will type some examples into the body of your discussion, use your edit button so you can see what I wrote and how it will appear.
